The Team forms part of the Compliance Department which covers JPMorgan’s investment banking, corporate banking and treasury services businesses in the EMEA region.
The Team is recruiting for an experienced, high caliber experienced VP-level individual to provide senior advisory support and relationship management within the Equities businesses; including cash equities, vanilla and exotic equity derivatives, ECM Syndicate, portfolio trading and convertible bonds.

They must be able to think of their feet, often providing ‘live’ regulatory interpretations and decisions to the business in high profile and/or time constrained situations.
Candidates must be good team players and will be expected to provide back-up support to the equity businesses generally and potentially also provide input to new product proposals, business re-organisations, other ad hoc projects, etc. e.g. review of specific initiatives/transactions/structures to identify regulatory issues, as well as term sheets, financial promotions, etc.
The role will require close liaison with the Legal Teams covering these businesses to identify and manage the regulatory risks associated with specific transactions and the businesses as a whole. A detailed working knowledge of the FSA COB rules, UK Market Abuse Code and recent UK and EU regulatory developments, such as MiFID II and MAR is a pre-requisite.
